I know many people are not fans of Uwe Boll at all. There is either a love or absolutely hate when it comes to his films. I have seen them all and I am definitely a fan for sure. In 2009, he released a film called “Rampage”, which was quite awesome in fact. Brendan Fletcher was the star of that and he returns in the sequel “Rampage: Capital Punishment”, which is a decent follow-up to the first film. It is more crazy yet at the same time more subdued. Fletcher is a highlight as Bill Williamson again. It is such a cool character. Boll fans should check this out. Stand tuned for “Rampage 3” as well!

Official Premise: Violent anti hero Bill Williamson has a plan to change the world by exacting vengeance on the rich, and ripping Washington apart. He holds a number of people hostage and uses his captives as his political platform to spread his message and awaken humanity. It’s time to destroy the system, and change won’t happen peacefully.

Phase 4 Films is releasing the film as a Blu-ray + DVD combo pack. The 1080p transfer is decent and definitely doesn’t feel love budget. But the audio track isn’t really up to par. In fact, included is only a Dolby Digital Surround track, I mean come on…this is a DVD track not a Blu-ray track. It sounds fine to be honest but the potential is missed. The special features included are a commentary track from Uwe Boll. I love this guy and it is a real hoot. There is also a making of featurette and a trailer included.
